We received a warm welcome on arrival at Melkboomsdrift Guest Lodge and were pleasantly surprised when booking into this charming guesthouse located on the banks of the Olifant’s River, surrounded by vineyards with beautiful views of the countryside.

The homestead and outbuildings, which date back to 1820, have been painstakingly restored to provide very comfortable and charming accommodation. Reception is located in the original homestead while most of the accommodation is provided in the restored outbuildings with the names of each suite indicating their use in times gone by – they were once stables, milling rooms, a cowshed, milking room, wine cellar, harness room and as the local school. We stayed in “Die Skooltjie” (little schoolhouse).
